Someone keeps sticking the reporting marks and hyphen on this (and other) bridge name. Since the bridge is most commonly associated with the Dow Barge Canal, the railroad reporting marks and hyphen have even less function here as a commonly used name.

The reporting marks have a place on the bridge's page, but not in the title, with a hyphen.
